Kimochi (キモチ / Feelings) are powerful Witch-like creatures that mysteriously begin appearing throughout Kamihama in Arc 2. Kimochi are able to summon Rumors as their minions and appear in a barrier-like atmosphere. According to an archive description from Magia Day 2019:

“A being that’s neither Witch nor Rumor, recently observed within Kamihama City. Out of a desire to return to the person they’re meant to dwell within, Feelings disturb and take control of their human visitors’ emotions, and attempt to impersonate them. Several Feelings appear to be scattered throughout town.”

Kimochi originate from the various gemstones that Embryo Eve decorated itself with, formed from the human emotions collected by Kamihama's Uwasa. {{Spoiler|After Embryo Eve's defeat near the end of Arc 1, these gemstones were scattered across Kamihama City.

After encoutering Sapphire Lips, it retreated into a jeweled bracelet that appeared on Iroha's wrist. The Kimochi briefly communicates with Iroha while the bracelet is being examined; it seems to want to go somewhere, and will only allow itself to be given to someone who Iroha can trust with her life. The members of Promised Blood appear to be searching for the Kimochi as well, and attempt to steal the bracelet.

Later, Shizuka Tokime defeats Ruby Navel and is the second to receive a bracelet. Of note, bracelets can only be removed and transferred to another's possession only if the holder of the bracelet trusts the recipient with their life.

Whoever possesses all Kimochi will gain control over Kamihama's Doppel field, and will be able to expand it.

When possessed by an owner, a Kimochi may lend its power to them in the form of a mask (or, potentially, other piece of armor or clothing) fitting its associated body part (a mouth-covering mask for Sapphire Lips, an eye-covering mask for Pearl Eye). This appears to happen when the owner is in a state of heightened stress, or emotion overall. This greatly enhances the wearer's strength and magic.


Judging by the glyphs on each of the bracelet’s panels and the available space for more jewels, there are presumably eight Kimochi in total. Each Kimochi has a glyph that corresponds to a different symbol of the Bagua and a name that corresponds to Plutchik's wheel of emotions. However, there appears to be a ninth glyph on the bracelet that has yet to be identified.

Fanmade Analysis and Comparisons

Trivia

  • The Aquamarine Heel, Pearl Eye, and Garnet Pinky are the only Kimochi whose color does not resemble the actual color it mainly features.
    • The former may be called Aquamarine because the associated animal of the trigram is the Azure Dragon.
    • Pearls can be found in various shades of colors including pink.
    • Garnet species can be found in every color with reddish shades being the most common. Uvarovite garnets are green.
  • The Opal Head, Pearl Eye and Aquamarine Heel in particular take a form vaguely reminiscent of the animal connected to their Ba Gua glyph.
    • Drifting Diamond Hair should have featured a thigh as its body part, not hair.
